    '83 Fuji Touring Bike mint

    I need to sell a bike, so this one goes. '83 FUJI Touring Series IV in mint condition. It looks pretty much like new, although I have replaced the tires and tubes and taken off the generator light and replaced the foam wrap with cork. I don't know how much to ask for it though, any suggestions?

    Wow, very nice. Can't help on a value, but I bet it fetches a pretty penny.

    $250-$300 in my area. Maybe more in Portland Oregon.
    Laterally stiff yet vertically compliant.

    I have a 1983 Fuji Touring Series IV myself. It is a very nice bike, and touring bikes are red hot right now. The series IV is one from the top of Fuji touring bikes (the best was a series V). Given you are in Portland, and the bike's outstanding condition, you might be able to get $350. Good luck, and let us know!

    If that was on the Boston CL for $350 I'd be driving there know to pick it up. A Touring Series V just went for over $600 on EBay.

    I had to chime in here. Living in the SF Bay Area and working in LA right now and searching both CL's for an 80's steel racer; I'd have to say that the prices for steel bikes is crazy right now. In either of these two markets, I don't think it would be unusual to see $400 being paid for an obviously pristine condition high end tourer. It looks suspiciously like a mid-80's Specialized Expedition that I have and saw someone selling a similar Exp. for $800.

    fuji mint tourer

    Yes, it can get crazy, especially in the summer. Bike shops here in Portland have been swamped since the first really nice spring day we had in April. I hate to sell such a pristine bike, but I sort of need to. I saw the Series V that sold for $650 on ebay, and mine is just as nice maybe better. It has the bar-end shifters like the V too. There are two tiny paint scratches, otherwise it looks pretty much new. I will try CL first, then ebay if I must. I hope whoever buys it rides it!

    Sadly, I saw one of those posted for $50 a month or two ago. I was too late.
